PLANS UNDER THE OLDER AMERICANS ACT OF 1965, AS AMENDED
SUBJECT: Reallotment Procedure for FY 2000 TITLE
III Formula Grant Funds
LEGAL AND RELATED REFERENCES: Section 304(b)
of the Older Americans Act of 1965, As Amended
The purpose of this memorandum is to provide guidance for state
agencies to notify the Administration on Aging (AoA) of:
1) the amount, if any, of FY 2000 Title III funds which states
will not use by September 30, 2000, and will release for reallotment;
and 2) the request for additional Title III funds which could
be obligated by the state agencies in FY 2000 and
FY 2001. As you know, Title III funds, which are made available
through reallotment, are available for obligation by state agencies
during the following fiscal year in which funds were appropriated.
Release of Funds
State agencies not intending to use the full amount of their
Title III allotments should submit a statement signed by the authorized
state agency official releasing Title III funds for reallotment.
This statement must identify from which allotment the funds are
being released. If a state releases funds for reallotment, a revised
Grant Award will be issued reflecting the decrease.
Request for Funds
If additional funds can be utilized, state agencies should submit
a brief statement requesting additional funds signed by the appropriate
state agency official.
The statement must identify the allotment for which additional
funds are being requested. States should submit an original and
one copy of their statements to the AoA Regional Administrator
by September 8, 2000 States are reminded that funds received in
reallotment are one-time awards, and there is no assurance of
the receipt of similar amounts in FY 2001.
DUE DATES : September 8, 2000, for submission
to Regional Administrators on Aging, DHHS regional offices.
INQUIRIES : Inquiries should be addressed to:
Regional Administrators on Aging,DHHS regional offices.
